Liverpool away is a fixture we all look at and instantly write off as a loss.
The fact we haven’t won there since 1963 tells you all you need to know about our lack of fortunes at Anfield for pretty much all your lifetimes.
But this season has already been a successful one. We’ve done things we thought weren’t capable, we’re well in the hunt for European qualification and if there was ever a time to break the Anfield-hoodoo, it’s now.
